See thread 1681: Froggy
Lyrics by Burl Ives are linked there among others. Are you interested only in those by singers of the last 50 years, or in those of the last three centuries as well?

Sorry I do have the Burl Ives version as well just over looked it. I am only interested in artists that have made a recording of this song or some version of it, and that I have a reasonable chance of finding
Thanks

_Rise Up Singing_, under "Froggie Went a-Courtin'", lists recordings by Mike & Peggy Seeger, Pete Seeger, Sparky Rucker, B. Hinkley & J. Larson, and Spider John Koerner (in addition to Watson and McCutcheon, whom you mention). Under "Here's to Cheshire, Here's to Cheese", it lists Tom Smith (in addition to McCutcheon); I also have that version on one of Pete Seeger's LPs, but I can't find it at the moment.

Perhaps a list of singers who have *not* recorded it would be shorter. %^)
